    Suppose you’re in a rush, feeling tired, not paying attention to your screen, and you send an email that could get you in trouble.

    Realisation will probably set in seconds after you’ve clicked “send”. You freeze in horror and burn with shame.

    What to do? Here are four common email accidents, and how to recover.

    Clicking “send” too soon

    Don’t waste your time trying to find out if the receiver has read it yet. Write another email as swiftly as you can and send it with a brief title explaining that this is the correct version and the previous version should be ignored.

    Writing the wrong time

    The sooner you notice, the better. Respond quickly and briefly, apologising for your mistake. Keep the tone measured: don’t handle it too lightly, as people can be offended, especially if your error suggests a misunderstanding of their culture(i.e. incorrect ordering of Chinese names).

    Clicking “reply all” unintentionally

    You accidentally reveal(透露)to the entire company what menu choices you would prefer at the staff Christmas dinner, or what holiday you’d like to take. In this instance, the best solution is to send a quick, light-hearted apology to explain your awkwardness. But it can quickly rise to something worse, when everyone starts hitting “reply all” to join in a long and unpleasant conversation. In this instance, step away from your keyboard to allow everyone to calm down.

    Sending an offensive message to its subject

    The most awkward email mistake is usually committed in anger. You write an unkind message about someone, intending to send it to a friend, but accidentally send it to the person you’re discussing. In that case, ask to speak in person as soon as possible and say sorry. Explain your frustrations calmly and sensiblysee it as an opportunity to clear up any difficulties you may have with this person.

    36. After realising an email accident, you are likely to feel _______.

       A. curious     B. tired     C. awful    D. funny 

    37. If you have written the wrong name in an email, it is best to ________.

    A. apologise in a serious manner

    B. tell the receiver to ignore the error

    C. learn to write the name correctly

    D. send a short notice to everyone

    38. What should you do when an unpleasant conversation is started by your “reply all” email?

    A. Try offering other choices.

    B. Avoid further involvement.

    C. Meet other staff members.

    D. Make a light-hearted apology.

    39. How should you deal with the problem caused by an offensive email?

    A. By promising not to offend the receiver again.

    B. By seeking support from the receiver’s friends.

    C. By asking the receiver to control his anger.

    D. By talking to the receiver face to face.

    40. What is the passage mainly about?

    A. Defining email errors.

    B. Reducing email mistakes.

    C. Handling email accidents.

    D. Improving email writing.

    When a leafy plant is under attack it doesn’t  sit quietly. Back in 1983,two scientists,Jack Schultz and Ian Baldwin,reported that young maple trees getting bitten by insects send out a particular smell that neighboring plants can get. These chemicals come from the injured parts of the plant  and seem to be an alarm.What the plants pump through the air is a mixture of chemicals known as volatile organic compounds,VOCs for short.

       Scientists have found that all kinds of plants give out VOCs when being attacked .It’s a plant’s way of crying out.But is anyone listening?Apparently.Because we can watch the neighbours react.

       Some plants pump out smelly chemicals to keep insects away.But others do double duty .They pump out perfumes designed to attract different insects who are natural enemies to the attackers.Once they arrive,the tables are turned .The attacker who are natural enemies to the attackers . zxx|k Once they arrive,the tables are turned.The attacker who was lunching now becomes lunch.

      In study after study,it appears that these chemical conversations help the neighbors .The damage is usually more serious on the first plant,but the neighbors ,relatively speaking ,stay safer because they heard the alarm and knew what to do.

    Does this mean that plants talk to each other? Scientists don’t know. Maybe the first plant just made a cry of pain or was sending a message to its own branches, and so, in effect, was talking to itself. Perhaps the neighbors just happened to “overhear” the cry. So information was exchanged, but it wasn’t a true, intentional back and forth.
             Charles Darwin, over 150 years ago, imagined a world far busier, noisier and more intimate(
    亲密的) than the world we can see and hear. Our senses are weak. There’s a whole lot going on.

    32. What does a plant do when it is under attack?
    A. It makes noises.     B. It gets help from other plants.
    C. It stands quietly    D. It sends out certain chemicals.
    33. What does the author mean by “the tables are turned” in paragraph 3?
    A. The attackers get attacked.
    B. The insects gather under the table.
    C. The plants get ready to fight back.
    D. The perfumes attract natural enemies.

    34.Scientists find from their studies that plants can           .

    A.predict natural disasters  B.protect themselves against insects

    C.talk to one another intentionally D.help their neighbors when necessary

    35.what can we infer from the last paragraph?

    A.The word is changing faster than ever.

    B.People have stronger senses than before

    C.The world is more complex than it seems

    D.People in Darwin’s time were imaginative.

      Terrafugia Inc .said Monday that its new flying car has completed its first flight,bringing the company closer to its goal of selling the flying car within the next year.The wehicle-named the Transition – has two seats wheels and wings that fold up so it can be driven like a car.The Transition,which flew at 1,400 feet for eight minutes last month, can reach around 70 miles per hour on the road and 115 in the flies using a 23-gallon tank of gas and bums 5 gallons per hour in the air. On the ground, it gets 35 miles per gallon.

    Around 100 people have already put down a $10,000 deposit to get a Transition when they go on sale, and those numbers will likely rise after Terrafugia introduces the Transition to the public later this week at the New York Auto Show. But don’t  expect it to show up in too many driveways. It’s expected to cost $279,000.And it won’t  help if you’re stuck in traffic. The car needs a runway.

     Inventors have been trying to make flying cars since the 1930s, according to Robert Mann, an airline industry expert. But Mann thinks Terrafugia has come closer than anyone to making the flying car a reality. The govemment has already permitted z&xxkthe company to use special materials to make it easier for the vehicle to fly. The Transition  is now going through crash tests to make sure it meets federal safety siandards.

    Mann said Terrafugia was helped by the Federal Aviation Administration’s decision five years ago to create a separate set of standards for light sport aircraft, which are lower than those for pilots of larger planes. Terrafugia says an owner would need to pass a test and complete 20 hours of flying time to be able to fly the Transition,a requirement pilots would find relatively easy to meet.

    28. What is the first paragraph mainly about?

    A. The basic data of the Transition.     B. The advantages of flying cars.

    C. The potential market for flying cars.  C. The designers of the Transition.

    29. Why is the Transition unlikely to show up in too many driveways?

    A. It causers traffic jams.             B. It is difficult to operate.

    C. It is very expensive.               D. It bums too much fuel.

    30. What is the govemment’s attitude to the development of the flying car?

    A. Cautious                       B. Favorable.

    C. Ambiguous.                     D. Disapproving.

    31. What is the best title for the text?

    A. Flying Car at Auto Show          B. The Transition’s Fist Flight

    C.Pilots’Dream Coming True         D. Flying Car Closer to Reality

        Many people in high school cannot wait to go to college and leave their hometown behind. Questions arise, though, when it comes to all of the decisions involved in choosing a college.

        One of the first considerations may be finance. State and public colleges are often the least expensive. Often, though, the better colleges are private and more expensive. It is sad when gifted students cannot attend a college of their choice just for financial reasons.

        Another major factor is location. Whether the college is in a small town or large city can have a major impact on its activities. A water lover probably will be more comfortable spending four years near an ocean or a lake. Those who cannot tolerate heat will probably be more comfortable at a northern college. Distance from home may also come into consideration. If family is a top priority, that person should stay close to home; on the other hand, if independence is desired, a campus farther from home would be more appropriate.

        School size also plays a major role in the decision process. If you want to get to know your teachers, a small college is suitable. For those of you who consider yourself a "people person" and want a wide range of activities, a large college is more fitting. Your area of interest is another factor to consider in the decision­making process if you want to get the most from your education. The whole point of college is to learn what is of interest to you.

        Crucially, one must first take into consideration the colleges by which you can realistically be accepted. An Ivy League school for an average student would probably not be a good match. Similarly, an average school for an above­average student would not work well. The college should provide enough of a challenge for the student to work hard. Although there may not be the perfect college out there, there probably will be one that is close. Those who cannot find a suitable college are probably not looking hard enough.

    25When it comes to going to college the author thinks ______

     Astudents will become homesick

     Bstudents are unwilling to leave their home

     Ceconomic situation is the first to consider

     Dstudents are eager to attend their ideal university 

    26What does the underlined part a "people person" in the passage mean?

     AA very sociable person.            BA very particular person.

     CA person of great capacity.        DA person of great importance.

    27Which is the most important factor when choosing a college? 

     AThe location of a college.         BThe coming challenges.

     CSchool size.                       DThe examination result.

    Do you feel lucky? You probably don’t. You may think you’ve got where you are today through willpower and hard work. We tend to overlook luck’s roleand this seems to get worse the richer we get; surveys show that the wealthiest are least likely to owe their fortunes to good fortune. Many such people oppose taxation(税收) and government spending: why should others get a handout(救济品) if they don’t need one? More often than notthey vote against the very policies that helped them get lucky to begin with. In a recent Atlantic essayRobert Frankan economist who has studied attitudes to chancequoted(引用) EB White: “Luck is not something you can mention in the presence of self-made men.”

    However if we see this just as a problem of the super-rich peoplewe may let the rest of us off too easily. Anyone living in a highly developed economy in 2016 is already the one who benefits from luck—for examplenot living in the modern-day Central African Republic where few people can live a long life. In factwe are lucky to have been born human. You might have been a battery henor a mayfly with only one day to live.

    Our blindness to such truths isn’t only because we’re self-absorbed but also we attach more significance to things that are easier to call to mind. It’s not hard to recall countless times when you put in the effort to succeed: struggling through university finalspreparing for job interviewstolerating a long-distance travel to work. On the other handit’s rather difficult to realize you’re privileged—like not being born in a war zoneor before antibiotics(抗生素),and so forth.

    27. What does the underlined sentence in paragraph 1 mean?

    A. Self-made men don’t like to be talked about.

    B. Successful people owe their achievements to luck.

    C. Successful people tend to overlook the role of luck.

    D. Self-made men are more likely to show off their fortune.

    28. According to the authoryou are fortunate if you are not           .

    A. struggling through university finals      B. preparing for interviews

    C. tolerating a long distance travel         D. living in a war zone

    29. We can learn from the passage that           .

    A. few people in Africa are lucky       B. each of us is actually privileged

    C. people value the importance of luck       D. people succeed because of luck

    30. Which of the following might be the best title for the text?

    A. Luck Is A Blessing                    B. We Are Lucky

      C. How To Be Lucky                    D. Who Is Lucky

    Cui Yutao Yuxueyuan, a popular Chinese child-training app, and baby diaper(尿布)brand Pampers recently released in Beijing a White Paper on the Sleep Quality of Chinese Babies, which is the first of its kind in China based on big data analysis through research the app hosted and a survey involving nearly 10,000 respondents.

    According to the White Paper, more than 75 percent of Chinese parents have babies who do not sleep well at night, and babies aged between 6 to 12 months in particular have restless nights and wake up multiple times at night.

     It also says that less than 6 percent of parents know why their babies do not enjoy a deep sleep at night, and 23 percent of parents do not have the slightest idea of the reasons.

     Babies cuddled or nursed to sleep wake up more frequently in the middle of the night; waking up babies to nurse them or change diapers also greatly affects their sleep quality.

    Data also showed that parents who do not think their babies sleep well are more likely to interrupt the babies’ sleep, according to the White Paper.

     Cui Yutao Yuxueyuan and Pampers also announced a strategic partnership and released the “Five Foolproof Tips” for Chinese parents to help their babies sleep through the night for better growth, which ask parents not to cuddle or nurse the babies to sleep, have the babies sleep in their own beds, not to pick up babies who wake up in the middle of the night immediately, and not to wake the babies up from deep sleep to feed them.

    24. What is special about the White Paper?

      A. It is the first paper on the Sleep Quality of Chinese Babies with large data.

      B. It deals with the Sleep Quality of Chinese Babies with an app.

      C. It has the largest number of participants in the research.

      D. It is the first report on giving professional suggestions.

    25. Which of the following statement is NOT included in the paper?

      A. Most parents do not know why their babies fail to enjoy a deep sleep at night.

      B. Nursing babies like changing diapers will affect their sleep quality seriously.

      C. Helping babies sleep through the night ensures their better growth.

      D. Babies between 6 to 12 months seem to be poorer in the quality of sleep.

    26. This passage is mainly about ________.

    A. a White Paper for the better sleep of Chinese babies

    B. Chinese parents facing the problem of poor sleep

    C. “Five Foolproof Tips” for your better sleep

      D. Cui Yutao Yuxueyuan and Pampers working together

      While driving home after work, Jane Hodgson noticed a car pulled over at the side of the road and a crowd beginning to gather around someone who was lying on the ground.

        Jane, who had completed a first aid at work course, pulled over to see if she could offer any help --- and it turned out to be lucky for the young injured girl that she did.

        Describing the scene she came across, Jane says: "The onlookers were ashen-faced and looking lost. They were so shocked that they hadn't even thought to call for an ambulance yet."

        After speaking to the emergency services, Jane started finding out what had happened and what injuries the young girl called Jenny had. The girl had been hit by a car and gone over the handlebars of her bike, landing on her head and shoulder. Her shoulder and arm were twisted(扭曲)underneath her.

        "She hadn't been wearing a helmet when she got knocked won, and I thought that she should not be moved as I couldn't be sure about the spinal injury, but after looking her over and checking the circulation in her injured arm I did feel fairly confident that she had escaped relatively unhurt.

        "As we were waiting for an ambulance, the amount of pain the girl was in was increasing. To distract her and minimize the risk of her going into shock I kept her talking. She held my hand tightly when the pain got too much and this helped. I told her I cold handle it --- we laughed about that," describes Jane.

        Later, a doctor from the local hospital's ICU stopped at the scene too. The ICU doctor decided that Jenny should lie on her back, making her much more comfortable until the emergency services arrived.

        Thinking back, Jane says: "For me, knowing that in a small way I helped that girl through what was a frightening experience is all the reward I need. I felt great to know I'd made a difference and I'd do it again."

    21. What can we learn about Jane Hodgson from the text?

      A. She is an ICU doctor.             B. She is a first-aid trainer.

      C. She works in a local hospital.    D. She has learned some first aid.

    22. What did Jane find after looking over the injured girl?

      A. Jenny had a spinal injury.       

      B. Jenny didn't have serious injuries.

      C. Jenny couldn't remember what had happened.

      D. Jenny lost her helmet when she was knocked down.

    23. What did Jane do while waiting for an ambulance?

      A. Jane asked Jenny not to talk.     B. Jane let Jenny lie on her back.

      C. Jane was a little impatient.      D. Jane kept giving Jenny confidence.

    A gaming company in New Zealand is luring employees from around the world by offering unlimited paid annual leave, a share in the company’s profits and no set work hours.

    Dean Hall became famous in international gaming circles for being the lead designer on popular video game DayZ.After searching the world for a location for his new gaming studio, Rocketwerkz, New Zealander Hall settled on the small university town of Dunedin on the south island’s east coast, where land is cheap and creative start-ups have become an important part of the city’s identity.

    Rocketwerkz’s flexible work culture is now drawing talent from around the globe, with Hall receiving 300 messages of inquiry since a local newspaper wrote about his studio last week.

    Last year, when the company was still in its infancy(婴儿期), baby cats would also make a regular appearance in the office as a form of fighting stress, and Friday afternoons are generally reserved for sports and games to end the week on a playful note.

    “The first time I heard about the idea of unlimited paid leave in places like Silicon Valley it was about the problems it caused. A culture had appeared where employees took no leave,” said Hall.

    “So to address that, our staff are issued the standard New Zealand annual leave of four weeks, but they can also take unlimited leave in addition to that. ”

    Emily Lampitt , from Britain, is a 3D junior artist who has been with the company for a yearandahalf.She says the flexible work culture was a huge factor in her decision to move to New Zealand.

    “The flexibility here has made me feel much more relaxed ” she says. “That internal stress I used to feel in a traditional work environment has gone, so when I am at work now it is because I want to be, because I am passionate(有激情的) ,not because I am afraid of my boss or watching the clock.”

    24.The underlined word “luring” in Paragraph 1 is closest in meaning to _______.
    A.cheating    B.disturbing     C.inspiring    D.attracting

    25.Why are baby cats mentioned in Paragraph 4?
    A. To show the company focuses on pressure relief.
    B. To explain how the company motivates its staff.
    C. To stress the significance of harmony in workplaces.
    D. To introduce a new way to promote creativity

    26.According to the passage, unlimited paid leave in Silicon Valley________.
    A.set a good example to Rochetwerkz      B.didn’t work out as expected 
    C.helped develop the local culture     D.solved the problem of unemployment

    27.What is the writing purpose of the above text?
    A. To encourage It companies to be more flexible.
    B. To describe what a creative company should be like.

    "I never knew before, Cecil, that you were so fond of drawing," said Aunt Sophia, as she looked over the shoulder of her nephew, who was busy with his pencil. "You really have made great progress."

    "I need to do so," cried Cecil, "if I am to carry off the prize for drawing, as I am determined to do this term."

    "I should have thought," said the aunt, "that you had little chance against Lee. He is an artist's son, and has used the pencil, one might almost say, from his cradle.(摇篮)"

    "That will double the pleasure of beating him!" cried Cecil, dashing the bough of a tree into his picture, as if he meant what he said. "I'm working now at this four hours a day; he never draws more than two."

    "You are not neglecting(忽视) your Latin for it, I hope? You have had the Latin prize every term for these three years past," said Aunt Sophia.

    "Yes," replied Cecil, with a proud smile; "there is no boy in our class can match me in that, though Russell is now working hard. But I am not content with one prize: I cannot rest till I have won the paint-box for drawing, of which Tom Lee makes so sure. It would be glorious to beat the son of an artist on his own ground!"

    "Take care," said his aunt, gently laying her hand on his shoulder, "that you do not lose the Latin prize, in trying for that which you are not likely to gain. Remember the fable of the dog that dropped the substance, in catching at the shadow."

    On the evening of the day on which the names of the prize-winners were read out, Cecil came home from school gloomy and grave. His looks told his aunt enough to make her spare him the pain of questions; but his little sister Rosey was not so thoughtful.

    " Cecil," she cried, running eagerly up to him, "tell me, are you to get the two prizes?"

    "No, not even one. I was so busy trying to beat Lee, that I could not hold my ground against Russell." Cecil threw himself into a sofa in an angry mood.

    Their aunt silently hoped that the lesson might prove worth the pain which it cost.

    21. What made Cecil keep practicing drawing?

    A. His interest in drawing.      B. His desire to win the prize.
    C. Lee’s being the son of an artist.    D. Russell’s working hard on Latin.

    22. Which of the following words best describes Aunt Sophia?

    A. Considerate     B. Strict       C. Determined     D. Optimistic

    23. Why did Cecil fail to win any prizes?
    A. He didn’t put in enough time.     B. He had no talent  

    C. He was too ambitious           D. He was too tired

        When my sister Martie told me she had put out tomato plants last summer, I was quite impressed.

    She was a garden-beginner. Once they were planted, she tended to them daily, anxiously awaiting the juicy tomatoes to appear. But, day after day, her plants were tomato-less while all of her neighbors who had also put out tomato plants were already enjoying the fruit of their labor.

    Frustrated, Martie gave in and went to the market to search fresh tomatoes. While paying, Martie told the farmer her troubles. The farmer paused to think for a moment and then asked, “Well, what kind of tomatoes did you plant?”

    “I think they were called Big Boy,” Martie remembered.

    “Well there’s your problem,” the farmer explained. “Big Boy and Better Boy tomatoes have a 95 day growing period whereas regular tomato plants produce fruit in as few as 70 days…you just have to wait a little longer for the Big Boys. ”

    With that new knowledge, Martie went home with excitement, knowing they would be worth the wait.

    Thinking about my sister’s gardening experience, I had to smile. She just didn’t know that Big Boy tomatoes took longer ---neither did I --- but once she discovered that information, she was no longer discouraged and upset about the lack of tomatoes on her plants. Instead, she was encouraged and excited to see them a few weeks later.

    It makes me wonder how many of us have “Big Boy” dreams in our hearts, yet we just don’t realize that they are of the “Big Boy” variety so we are discouraged and worn out with the waiting process. Instead of waiting with excitement, we give up on our dreams and figure we must have done something wrong to stop them from coming to pass. Frustrated, we see other people’s dreams coming true, and we wonder why ours haven’t yet been achieved.

    21. Why did Martie’s tomato plants fail to produce at the expected time?

    A. Because they were destroyed by her neighbors.   

    B. Because she grew the wrong kind tomatoes.

    C. Because she didn’t manage the garden well.

    D. Because they required more time to produce.

    22. What does the author compare tomatoes to in the text?

    A. Goals.   B. Experiences.         C. Time.        D. Imagination.

    23. What does the text intend to show us?

    A. It’s better late than never.               B. A bad beginning makes a bad ending.

    C. Nothing is impossible for a willing heart.      D. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.

    When you take a walk in any of the cities in the West, you often see a lot of people walking dogs. It is still true that a dog is the most useful and faithful animal in the world, but the reason why people keep a dog has changed. In the old days people used to train dogs to protect themselves against attacks(攻击) by other beasts(野兽). And later they came to realize that a dog was not only useful for protection but willing to obey his master. For example, when people used dogs for hunting, the dogs would not eat what was caught without permission.

          But now people in the city need not protect themselves from attacks of animals. Why do they keep dogs, then? Some people keep dogs to protect themselves from robbery(盗劫). But the most important reason is for companionship(陪伴). For a child, a dog is his best friend when he has no friends to play with. For young couples, a dog is their child when they have no children. For old couples, a dog is also their child when their real children have grown up. So the main reason why people keep dogs has changed from protection to friendship.

    25.According to the passage, in the old days people trained dogs____.   

    A. for protection against robbery             B. just for fun

    C. for protection against other animals                 D. for companionship 

    26. The dogs were used for hunting because ___.         

    A.    they obeyed their masters        B. they were good hunters

    C. they were useful for protection      D. they did not eat other animals

    27. The most important reason for people to keep dogs now is ____.       

      A.    they want to protect themselves         B. they like children

      C. they enjoy hunting                         D. they need companion

    28. We can know from the passage that____.       

      A. the city can be very dangerous place

      B. city people always feel lonely

      C. dogs can be interesting

      D. dogs can be helpful to those who need friends

    If you could have one superpower, what would it be?

    Dreaming about whether you would want to read minds, see through walls, or have superhuman strength may sound silly, but it actually gets to the heart of what really matters in your life.

But why not start now?

    One of the best-known proverbs must be “Early to bed, early to rise, making a man healthy, wealthy and wise”. The promise of health, wealth and wisdom to those who join the ranks of the early retirees and risers must be particularly appealing to many people in our modern society. There is no doubt that one of the greatest concerns(关心) of modern man is his health. It is estimated that in the United States $200 billion is spent on health care each year. The medical field has grown into such a big business that it employs 4.8 million people; and it appears that in many places, more staff is needed to meet the demands of the people who are concerned about their physical well-being.

    Much more interest has been shown in preventive medicine in recent years. This is probably due in part to the increasing costs of medical treatment, but the writings of such people as Dr. Kenneth Cooper have also played an important role. In his book Aerobics Dr Cooper communicated his message of the benefits(好处) of exercise so effectively that many other authors have followed in his trail, and literally millions of readers have put on their sports shoes and taken to the highways and byways of America. A recent survey showed that over 17 million people are jogging. Many of these are so serious that they have trained themselves to run the 26 miles and 385 yards of the hard and tiring marathons that are organized all over the country. The last time I was in Honolulu, I was greatly surprised to see hundreds of people, young and old, running for their lives, and I discovered many of them have run in the Hawaiian Marathon.

    Exercise has also become a major part of conversation. At a dinner party recently, the president of a bank asked me, “You look like a runner; how far do you run each day?” A few days later when I appeared on a national television show, the host suddenly asked me if I was a regular runner. On both occasions the conversation turned to the subject of exercise and I found, as I have found whenever I have traveled recently, that this is a subject of being on many people’s minds. Of course, there are still many people who are less than enthusiastic about exercise. They appreciate the philosophy of Robert M. Hutchins who said, “Whenever the thought of exercise occurs to me, I lie down till it passes.”

    32. The first paragraph suggests that medical workers _______.

      A. are in great need                                       B. make a lot of money

      C. are concerned with their own health           D. like sports more than ordinary people

    33. In the United States, medical treatment is_______.

    A. very effective                                    B. not enough

    C. cheap                                               D. expensive

    34. Aerobic is a book about_______.

    A. medicine                                           B. exercise

    C. driving                                              D. marathon

    35.The examples of conversation in the last paragraph are used_______.

    A. to prove that people are tired of old conversation topics

    B. to prove that the writer was a good runner

    C. to show people’s interest in exercise

    D. to show the writer’s love for travel

    In the past, Americans used to think of the United States as a “melting pot” of immigrants(移民) from many different cultures to the United States, their old ways melted away and they became part of a completely new culture. The United States was likened to a big pot of soup, which had bits of flavor(味道,滋味) from each different culture. All of the different cultures were so well blended(混合,掺杂) together that it formed its own new flavor.

    Today, Americans realize that the simple “melting pot” theory is less true. Instead, different groups of people keep many of their old customs. Often groups of Americans from the same culture band together. They live together in distinctive communities, such as “Chinatowns” or “Little Italy”—areas populated almost exclusively(惟一,) by Americans of a single ethnic group—which can be found in many large American cities. Living in ethnic neighborhoods gives new Americans the security of sharing a common language and common traditions with people who understand them.

    In time, however, people from different backgrounds mix together.  They also mix with nativeborn Americans. Old traditions give way to new customs. The children of immigrants are often eager to adopt new, American ways. They often want to dress in American fashions, to speak English and to follow American social customs. By one estimate(估计),about 80 percent of European immigrants marry outside their own ethnic groups by the time they reach the third generation. Third generation means that their greatgrandparents were immigrants. Yet as successive generations become more “Americanized”, they often retain significant elements of their ethnic country.

    28. What does the text mainly talk about?

    A. The American way of life.

    B. Immigrants and nativeborn Americans.

    C. Old traditions and new customs.

    D. The multicultural society of the United States.

    29. Why does the author mention “Chinatowns” in the second paragraph?

      A. To give an example that many people keep their old customs.

      B. To show that Chinese cherish their old traditions.

      C. To contrast(对比) the Chinese way of life with that of the Italian’s.

      D. To give an example of the Americanization.

    30. The underlined word “ethnic” in the last sentence most probably means __________.

      A. moral                                 B. national

      C. cultural                               D. social

    31. The underlined word “Americanized” generally means__________.

      A. 美国人                              B. 研究美国社会的专家

      C. 有关美国的史料                D. 美国化的

    Every year on my birthday, from the time I turned 12,a white gardenia was delivered to my house. No card came with it. Calls to the flower-shop were not helpful at all. After a while I stopped trying to discover the sender’s name and just delighted in the beautiful white flower in soft pink paper.

    But I never stopped imagining who the giver might be. Some of my happiest moments were spent daydreaming about the sender. My mother encouraged these imaginings. She’d ask me if there was someone for whom I had done a special kindness. Perhaps it was the old man across the street whose mail I’d delivered during the winter. As a girl, though, I had more fun imagining that it might be a boy I had run into.

    One month before my graduation, my father died. I felt so sad that I became completely uninterested in my upcoming graduation dance, and I didn’t care if I had a new dress or not. But my mother, in her own sadness, would not let me miss any of those things. She wanted her children to feel loved and lovable. In truth, my mother wanted her children to see themselves much like the gardenia—lovely, strong and perfect with perhaps a bit of mystery(神秘).

    My mother died ten days after I was married. I was 22.That was the year the gardenia stopped coming.

    25.Which of the following would be the best title for the text?

    A. A Mother’s Love                                B. A Graduation Party

    26.The mother insisted that her daughter go to the graduation dance because _______.

    A. she hoped she would find a boyfriend

    B. she wanted her to be happy and strong

    C. she thought education was most important

    D. she could take care of things herself

    27.Who was the sender of the flower?

    A. One of the writer’s neighbors.            B. One of the writer’s classmates.

    C. The writer’s mother.                          D. A boy the writer had run into.

    One winter Sunday, my little sister, Collen, and I built the greatest snowman ever. For personality, we gave him a traditional carrot nose, beautiful hat, cozy scarf and gloves.

    The next morning, looking outside, we smiled adoringly at him over our cornflakes at breakfast. We even expressed our greetings to him as we passed on our way to school. Many kids went past our house, so he was the hot topic that morning. After school, my sister and I generously shared our professional snowman-building tips and techniques again with other kids.

    But as our yard came into sight, we saw something that wasn’t normal—our snowman was crushed. Though sad, we knew one thing: our snowman would rise again. And so we rebuilt him, but the next day we came home to still find the remains on the front lawn. For the rest of the week, the destruction was repeated daily. Each afternoon we’d return to find him crushed, and then we would build him up again.

    By Saturday morning, we had made a plan. We filled a really big bucket with water and left it outside. The next morning, it was frozen solid. After we packed snow all around the ice block for the base, we hid ourselves. Then we soon saw what we were waiting for. Three bullies(欺凌弱小者) in my school came over to our snowman and sneered(讥笑). Then taking their places on either side, they pulled back their legs to deliver powerful kicks. But when their feet connected with the hard ice block, sneers turned to surprise, then pain, and then tears.

    We came close to feeling sorry, but they were too funny as they hopped away holding their damaged feet. We couldn’t stop laughing. And that was the end of our problems with snow bullies.

     29. What does “he” refer to in Paragraph 2? 

        A. Their father.           B. Their snowman.             C. Their schoolmate.   D. Their enemy.

    30. What can we learn from the fourth paragraph?

      A. Three bullies got punished.                       B. The snowman was destructed.

      C. The writer and bullies fought.                           D. The snow makers’ feet got injured.

    31. Which of the following words can be best used to describe the writer and his/her sister?

      A. Smart but fierce.                                               B. Brave and flexible.          

      C. Clever and patient.                                          D. Friendly but dull.

    From the health point of view we are living in an amazing age. We are free from many of the most dangerous diseases. A large number of once deadly illnesses can now be cured by modern medicine. It is almost certain that one day medicines will be found for the most stubborn remaining diseases. The expectation of life has increased greatly. But though the possibility of living a long and happy life is greater than ever before, every day we witness the unbelievable killing of men, women and children on the roads. Man Vs the motor-car! It is a never-ending battle which man is losing.

    Thousands of people all over the world are killed or horribly killed each year and we are quietly sitting back and letting it happen. It has been rightly said that when a man is sitting behind a steering wheel (方向盘), his car becomes the extension of his personality. There is no doubt that the motor-car often brings out a man’s very worst qualities. People who are normally quiet and pleasant may become unrecognizable when they are behind a steering-wheel. They say, they are ill-mannered and aggressive, willful as two-year-olds and completely selfish. Their hidden angers and disappointments seem to be brought to the surface by the act of driving.

    The surprising thing is that society smiles so gently on the motorist and seems to forgive his behavior. Everything is done for his convenience. Cities are allowed

    to become almost uninhabitable because of heavy traffic; towns are made ugly by

    huge car parks; the countryside is ruined by road networks; and the deaths become nothing more than a number every year, to be easily forgotten.

    It is high time a world rule was created to reduce this senseless waste of human life. With regard to driving, the laws of some countries are unbelievable lenient (宽容的) and even the strictest are not strict enough. A rule which was universally accepted could only have an obviously beneficial effect on the accident

    rate.

    Here are a few examples of some of the things that might be done. The driving test should be standardized and made far more difficult than it is; all the drivers should be made to take a test every three years or so; the age at which young people are allowed to drive any vehicle should be raised to at least 21; all vehicles should be put through strict tests for safety each year. Even the smallest amount of alcohol in the blood can damage a person’s driving ability. Present drinking and driving laws (where they exist) should be made much stricter. Speed limits should be required on all roads. Governments should lay down safety specifications for car factories, as has been done in the USA. All advertising stress power and performance should be banned. These measures may not sound good enough. But surely nothing should be considered as too severe if it results in reducing the number of deaths. After all, the world is for human beings, not motor-cars.

    51.    What is the main idea of this passage?

    A.   Traffic accidents are mainly caused by motorists.

    B.   Thousands of people all over the world are killed each year.

    C.   The laws of some countries about driving are too lenient.

    D.  We should have stricter traffic laws to prevent accidents.

    52.    What does the author think of society toward motorists?

    A.   Society laughs at the motorists.

    B.  Huge car parks are built in the cities and towns.

    C.   Victims of accidents are nothing.

    D.  Society forgives their rude driving.

    53.    What does the author mean by saying “his car becomes the extension of his personality in Paragraph 2?

    A.   Driving can show his hidden qualities.

    B.   Driving can show the other part of his personality.

    C.   Driving can bring out his character.

    D.  Driving can represent his manners.

    54.    Which of the following is NOT mentioned as a way against traffic accidents?

    A.   Perfect the road network.

    B.  Stricter driving tests.

    C.   Test drivers every three years.

    D.  Raise age limit and lay down safety specifications.

    55.    The author’s attitude towards the traffic situation is                              .

    A. confused                    B. dissatisfied                 C. appealing                   D. doubtful

    Many cities around the world today are heavily polluted. Careless methods of production and lack of consumer demand for environment friendly products have contributed to the pollution problem. One result is that millions of tons of glass, paper, plastic and metal container are produced, and these are difficult to get rid of.

        However, today, more and more consumers are choosing “green” and demanding that the products they buy should be safe for the environment. Before they buy a product, they ask questions like these, “Will this shampoo damage the environment?” “Can this metal container be reused or can it only be used once?”

        A recent study showed that two out of five adults now consider the environment safety of a product before they buy it. This means that companies must now change the way they make and sell their products to make sure that they are “green”, that is, friendly to the environment.

        Only a few years ago, it was impossible to find green products in supermarkets, but now there are hundreds. Some supermarkets’ products carry labels to show that the product is green. Some companies have made producing of clean and safe products their main selling points and emphasize (强调) it in their advertising.

        The concern for a safer and cleaner environment is making companies rethink how they do business. No longer will the public accept the old attitude of “Buy it, use it, throw it away, and forget it.” The public pressure is on, and gradually business is cleaning up its act.

    32. It becomes clear from the passage that the driving force (动力) behind the green products is ______.

    A. companies’ desire for bigger sales         B. public caring for the environment

    C. new ways of doing business               D. rapid growth of supermarkets

    33. Which of the statements is TRUE according to the passage?

        A. Only the productive methods are the cause of the heavy pollution.

    B. Manufactures(制造商) made their products clean with cleaners.

    C. Not all the consumers would like green products.

    D. In fact, it is the public who made the companies produce green products.

    34. The underlined word “it” in the fourth paragraph refers to ______.

    A. a selling point                             B. the company name

    C. the producing of green products          D. a great demand for health foods

    35. What would be the best title for the text?

    A. Business Goes Green                   B. Business and People                 C. Shopping Habits Are Changing                D. Supermarkets and Green Products
